Donald Tolson

May 24, 1932 — October 2, 2019


Donald R. Tolson, 87, of Hartville, Ohio, passed away, October 2, 2019.  Born May 24, 1932 in Akron, Ohio, he was the son of the late Marvin and Dorothy Bischoff Tolson.

A devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Donald’s grandchildren were his special blessing from above and he loved them very much.  He was an animal lover and a die hard Cleveland Browns football fan.  He enjoyed golf and boating. He and Beverly enjoyed traveling, as they discovered many beautiful places.  He spent his career as a surveyor for commercial construction companies and was an integral part of building the bridge network that spans the city of Pittsburgh, PA. His talents led him to build his own home, as well as  his parents’ home, both with much love and where dreams came true.  He was a member of the Portage Lakes Masonic Lodge #752 and the Hartville Church of the Brethren.
